Is a TPO Roof the Right Choice for Your Building?

What Is a TPO Roof?

TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is a single-ply roofing membrane that is popular for commercial properties. TPO roofing materials include propylene, ethylene, rubber and fillers. The roofing membrane is composed of synthetic materials and reinforcing scrim which can be used to cover flat roofs.

Advantages of a TPO Roof

  1. Since a TPO roofing system is made of a rubber compound bonded with polyester fabric, it can withstand the harshest weather conditions, including extreme ultraviolet and chemical exposure. It is also resistant to punctures, rips, corrosion and bacterial growth. A TPO roof can survive for at least 30 years if properly maintained.

  1. TPO roofing systems are lighter in weight and available in wider sheets than other forms of commercial roofs. This means that installation will require less time or effort, making the installation more affordable than with other roofing systems. To avoid costly complications in the future, choose a trustworthy and competent roofing contractor to complete your commercial roofing installation.

  1. Another advantage of TPO roofing is that it reflects the sun’s harmful heat and ultraviolet radiation. With a TPO roof, you can reduce your building’s energy consumption and, as a result, your energy costs throughout the year.
